Product Details


.”A deeply felt meditation on the vital role of passion in good teaching . . . stuffed with . . . samples, stories, interviews with good teachers, lists of things to try. . . . Fried writes about education with passionate, engrossing pragmatism. As a teacher, perhaps the highest compliment that I can pay this book is that I’m planning right now to try out some of its suggestions.” –Anthony Rotundo, The Washington Post

“Convinces us of the value of passion by actually taking us into classrooms where teachers dissolve student disinterest not with ‘tricks’ but rather with an authentic commitment to what and who they are teaching.” –Teacher Magazine

“A superb book, better than any other of its kind.” –Seymour Sarason, author of Teaching as a Performing Art

“My ideal of a ‘how-to’ book.” –From the foreword by Deborah Meier, author of The Power of Their Ideas

“The best blend of theory and practice I’ve found. My colleagues and I use it in workshops for new and veteran teachers, and as a cornerstone of a new master’s program. The new chapter is an exciting addition to an already great book.” –Randy Wisehart, high school teacher and college instructor, Earlham College

“A marvelous book. I’d like to put a half dozen copies in my teachers’ lounge!” — Lawrence Bickford, math and computer science teacher, Hopkinton School, Contoocook, New Hampshire
